My wife and I took the three day seniors course at Grande Dunes. She's a beginner and I'm a bit more experienced (like a lot). Still, a great experience for us both, including superb instruction for each of us, personal, detailed attention, video analysis, reasonable price, nice area, great facilities. Staff easy to work with and flexible when possible. Good... More

The Pro was unbelievable. His knowledge and transferring it to us was great. This had to be one of the best learning experiences I have had in any sport.

My pro James Brooks has taught me since I was 13 years old when we met in ellicottville new york. I am now 15 years old and have grown and matured into a well rounded young man dew to the help of James. James is more than a golf coach he is a life coach always asking about how you... More

I just completed the three day academy at the Grande Dunes locations. I did this last year as well. James was my instructor both times (I specifically requested him this time). I had a great time and my game has steadily improved. I would recommend Mel Sole and James to anyone. Thanks. Bill

As a beginner golfer (as in golf 101) I was thrilled with this school. The pro Greg was patient, knowledgeable and had a great way of helping me to understand. Building front eh basics set me up for a successful 3 days. On the last day my friend and I were joined by another student who was clearly of higher... More

James Brooks is a fantastic instructor/ coach. Incredibly patient with lots of positive feedback. Very good at diagnosing issues quickly with any skill level and helping you see results immediately. I'm looking forward to many return visits in the future. I highly recommend Mel Sole Golf School Myrtle Beach and James Brooks in particular. Awesome experience!

James Brooks is an awesome instructor. He was very understanding and taught me the basic repeatable swing! I would definately recommend him to anyone who is skeptical. I will be back for the graduate course next year!

My husband and I attended the Mel Sole golf school with James as our instructor. Both of us being novices, James was able to communicate with us and teach us how to properly swing a golf club in no time. The videos were a great learning tool as you see exactly what you're doing wrong and what you should be... More

When we met James Brooks last year, my confidence was almost shattered. After my first three day school, he restored not only my swing, but gave me a regiment of practice to use at home. My practice strictly followed his outlined workouts and I stuck to the plan throughout the rest of the summer and into the winter. When winter... More
